The Forum assignment addresses the fifth course objective, specifically, the operation of the Supreme Court as part of the Judicial Branch of the government.

The Forum assignment this week is to discuss how the Supreme Court determines which cases to adjudicate, which cases not to adjudicate, and why.
Select one of the all-time Supreme Court cases from 2000 on, and explain why the Supreme Court accepted it for adjudication (not what the case is about).
The cases to choose from include:
10. Gonzalez v. Raich
12. Kelo v. City of New London
16. Hiibel v. Nevada
25. Lawrence v. Texas
